Ariel Cunningham had a busy summer preparing her classroom for the second grade students at St James/Seton school.
"I didn't mind and the school gives us good support," she said in an interview with WOWT 6 News.
Mrs. Cunningham was determined to create the perfect Harry Potter classroom experience for her students and she succeeded.
"When I was for the right quote from the Harry Potter books I chose the words of Albus Dumbledore: 'It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are far more than our abilities.' So the whole thing was that I want them to know how important their choices are."
